Hello everyone
« on: December 21, 2013, 02:53:16 PM »
Hello all.  I'm glad I found this website.

I'm a 30+ year old male, single, overweight, generalized anxiety, OCD,  sleep apnea.

I was diagnosed several years ago with Generalized Anxiety Disorder.  When I was a teenager I was constantly getting panic attacks with nausea and palpatations.  I still have compulsive problems (door locking, etc)., and constant worrying about health issues, even when I feel fine.  I'm currently on Lexapro and Ambien for insomnia.  Also dxed last year with Sleep Apnea and currently on CPAP.  I have an intense white-coat syndrome and a terror of doctors offices.  If not I'd be there every other week with something new.  The moment I have the slightest symptom (headache?  must be a brain tumor, every fever or night sweat must be cancer) I assume the worst, and then am afraid to go for medical help, but the question is if I generally feel ok, why am I that worried to begin with?

Welcome to the forum. Good to have you as a member. Here you are with like minded people. People who understand. As we all suffer from something or other. So feel free to ask any questions. Our members are always willing to help others out. Good chatroom too. 3 posts to enter the room.

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section. Never really get the same amount of help in this section as you would on the other sections of the forums. So whatever one suits the questions you are asking. Get much better answers.
All users of the chatroom must be 18 years old or over. The room is off limits to anybody under the age of 18.

Hello,

I am glad that I found it too.  I am going through the same challenges of thinking I have everything under the sun over a few symptoms.  My introduction post is still awaiting approval, but you will see how out situations relate.  I look forward to further discussion with you.
